مسائل في الوضوء

Issues in the wudu


سألت زيد بن علي عليه السلام عن الوضوء مرة مرة، فقال: جائز، والثلاث أفضل.


I asked Zayd b. `Ali عليه السلام about (doing) the wudu once (i.e. in the number of washings).  So he said: Permissible, and three is better.


حدثني زيد بن علي، عن أبيه، عن جده، عن علي عليهم السلام أنه توضأ ومسح نعليه، وقال: هذا وضوء من لم يحدث.


Zayd b. `Ali narrated to me from his father from his grandfather from `Ali عليهم السلام that he did wudu and wiped his sandal, and he said: This is the wudu of someone who has not had a hadath (i.e. whose previous wudu had not been broken).


وسألت زيدا بن علي عليه السلام عن الوضوء من سؤر المشرك فقال: يتوضأ بسؤر شربه ولا يتوضأ بسؤر وضوئه، إلا أن يعلم أنه شرب خمراً أو أكل لحم خنزير فلا يتوضأ بسؤر شربه ولا وضوئه.


And I asked Zayd b. `Ali عليه السلام about wudu from the su’r of the mushrik.  So he said: One does wudu with the su’r of his drink and does not do wudu with the su’r of his wudu (or: hand-washing), unless one knows that he drank wine or ate pork, (if so) then do not do wudu with the su’r of his drink or his wudu.


وسألت زيد بن علي عليه السلام عن النميمة والغيبة تنقض الوضوء؟ فقال: لا.


And I asked Zayd b. `Ali عليه السلام about gossip and backbiting, does it break the wudu?  So he said: No.


وقال زيد بن علي عليهما السلام في الإناء يموت فيه الخنفساء والصَيَّاح والشَقَّاق. فقال: لا يضرك.


And Zayd b. `Ali عليهما السلام said regarding the vessel in which the beetle, the sayyah (?), and the shiqaq (?), have died.  So he said: It does not harm you.


سألت زيداً عن الرجل يتوضأ مرتين مرتين، فقال: يجزئه. قلت: فإن توضأ مرة مرة، قال: يجزئه.


I asked Zayd about the man who does wudu twice.  So he said: It suffices him.  I said: So if he does wudu once.  He said: It suffices him.


وسألت زيداً عليه السلام عن الرجل يتوضأ ثم يَقُصّ أظفاره، قال: يُمِر الماء على أظفاره.


And I asked Zayd عليه السلام about the man who does wudu, then he clips his nails.  He said: He passes water on his nails.
